|The student group MECHA sponsored a day dedicated
to highlighting the cultural significance of Dia de los Muertos on
Wednesday, November 2. It is a day when celebrants remember the dead
and mark the continuity of life. For those who celebrate the day,
the holiday is not a morbid one but rather a festive occasion. Activities
at Mission College included creation of altars dedicated to the dead,
dances by Folklorico Cuauhtli, and information about the holiday.
